IND vs SA: Mohammed Shami's injury increases the worries of the Indian team, fast bowlers are taking advice from doctors
IND vs SA: Mohammed Shami is currently in Mumbai and is taking advice from doctors. Mohammed Shami has complained of an ankle problem. Information has been received that the Indian fast bowler did not suffer this injury in the field. It will also be interesting to see whether Mohammed Shami will be fit before the Boxing Day Test or not. Shami has got a place in the Indian Test team on the South Africa tour.
India's star fast bowler Mohammed Shami is suffering from an ankle problem that needs treatment and the Indian team management is hopeful that he will be fit in time for the first Test against South Africa starting on December 26 in Centurion.
Shami has been included in the Test squad for the South Africa tour, but his availability will depend on fitness. It is learned that Shami was consulting 'Sports Orthopedic' in Mumbai for the treatment of his ankle problem.
BCCI source said that this is not an on-field injury. He is having some problems with his ankle. Shami came to Mumbai for doctors' advice. He will also go to NCA for rehabilitation and treatment. If Shami was unlikely to recover in time for the 'Boxing Day Test', the national selectors would not have selected him.
Indian Test team for South Africa tour: Rohit Sharma (captain), Shubman Gill, Yashasvi Jaiswal, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Ishan Kishan (wicketkeeper), KL Rahul (wicketkeeper), Ravichandran Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja, Shardul Thakur, Mohammad, Siraj, Mukesh Kumar, Mohd. Shami, Jasprit Bumrah (vice-captain), Prasidh Krishna.
